Yes, here is how I set the timeout

srcServer = TeamPlatform.getTeamRepositoryService().getTeamRepository(Properties.get(SourceServerURL));          
 // setup for login
            srcServer.registerLoginHandler(new LoginHandler(Properties.get(SourceUserID), userpw));
            // and set the connection timeout, has to be set before login
            // in seconds
            // login, will throw error if not authorized

but i read on javadoc
"Returns the connection timeout used for contacting the repository"
i don't understand if this param is about api or server.
also this param is in second but the setting timeout in server side is in minute.
i think this parameter is timeout of client platform.

You asked for Plain java, which is client.
this is the total elapsed connect time for the client to the server
(as the name says set 'ConnectionTimeout'

this api returns the current timeout value, but also allows setting the value.

my code uses 246060 to set the timeout to 1 days worth of seconds.

there is no 'server side' timeout..  there are timeouts when clients interact with server side services.. (query elapsed time timeout for example), or server side operations ( email send timeout, ...)   some may be specified in seconds or minutes

there is no 'server side' timeout..
then only way to logged out my java client is by explicit logout method.
is right?

there are two approaches..

1. you can explicitly logout if your app continues to run after you close the connection
2. when your application ends, the connecxtion manager handler closes the session for you (typical app cleanup)
